In prior versions of Firefox, the Properties Box used to include a large text "Description" box where I could put login information and other details for that bookmark. Now, in version 62.0, that text box no longer exists. Old bookmarks that I have no longer have this information either.

I used this text box extensively and Firefox was the one browser that had this box. Now it appears to have been removed. Can I get this Description box back? Or do I switch to a different browser?

Thanks, Macbel

In Version 61.0.xx, there was a description field in the tabs, which was indicated by the arrow "More". In the current version of 62.0, this field is missing. I have a lot of records on the site in this field. After the update, I lost the ability to view this information in bookmarks. Is there a similar field in the new version?

I had very important notes for work and study in the description section of my bookmarks - as many others did as well, I'm sure - however, as of a recent Firefox update, I've lost the description section and all of my work (quotes from lengthy sources related to health matters, extremely important research for work-related projects, and personal notes on books, etc.). How does Firefox intend to compensate for these losses?

I have many years worth of important comments stored in the comments field of my Firefox bookmarks. When I opened the "Show All Bookmarks" page today, the comment field is not showing up for any of my bookmarks. What happened? How do I get Firefox to display my comments again?

I used the TAG entries in my bookmarks to store various important site information, and after one of my recent upgrades, I went to one of my bookmark properties to review the data and discovered it was no longer there. I checked several other bookmarks for their tag information ALL of them had vanished! How can I get these entries back? I do not like the new formation for tag entries, since they are now showing up as selectable items in all of my tags. ARGH!!

Advance apologies for my bad phrasing. Volunteers can't speak for Mozilla. But after long association they do get a lot more information that leads them to adopt Mozilla's views. We peons of the user non-community don't read the support forums, and often don't even read the release notes. So the disappearance of the description field comes as a complete surprise to us.

Losing this feature really smarts for those of us who have become accustomed to store essential data there. How can sufficient pressure be brought to bear on Mozilla to prevent destruction of existing data in our bookmark files by v.62 and subsequent versions, until a satisfactory substitute appears? "Bookmark Notes" seems to be heading in the right direction, but isn't an answer until its import function is operational.
